The hero is a theme in all media-songs, video games, literature, etc. Heroes in all cultures share a pattern that is predictable and recognizable.

  • Unusual Birth-Son or daughter of a king; of royal or noble descent; sometimes an odd or unusual circumstance that is secret or magical; hero may be born into danger or as a fulfillment of a prophecy

  • Departure/Leaves Family-Something compels hero to leave his/her family; journey may be a discovery of true identity or an escape; often someone from afar brings message that precipitates departure

  • Special Weapon-Hero has special weapon that only he/she may use; weapon may have magical powers

  • Supernatural-Hero aided by a magical or supernatural guide/mentor

On a separate sheet of paper to be collected respond to the following

On a separate sheet of paper to be collected, respond to the following:

1.) Ralph Waldo Emerson once said, “A hero is no braver than an ordinary man, but he is brave five minutes longer.”

A.) In what way is this true? B.) Provide a real life example.

2.) Robert Louis Stevenson said, “The world has no room for cowards. We must all be ready somehow to toil, to suffer, to die. And yours is not the less noble because no drum beats before you when you go out into your daily battlefields, and no crowds shout about your coming when you return from your daily victory or defeat. “

A.) How is this similar to Emerson’s idea?

“World’s Greatest”-R. Kelly

To be turned in on a separate sheet:

  • While watching the video, answer the following:

    A.) What is this video’s definition of a hero? How do you know? What images do you see that exemplify this definition?

    B.) What images/ “modern day examples” are missing?


Homework

HOMEWORK

Look up OR write your own text (song, poem, book, blog post, etc) and highlight at least three types of figurative language. After identifying each type, tell what type it is and how it is effective (How does this add to the meaning of the text?). For example, we looked at and explained metaphors, personification and imagery in song lyrics and explained how each gave the lyrics power. DUE TOMORROW!
